NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

Important Announcement - Due to the destruction of the majority of pictures sent in by those who joined in the 'Tours' It really has been necessary to delete the entire thread.

If there is any interest in doing the same type of team building 'Tour' we could easily run another.
Somewhere I still have the EWS livery Olympic Tour Wagon.
The basic principal is that a wagon visits members layouts, being posted to the next on the list
once photographs have been taken and entered into the thread.
We always requested a speedy turnaround. Some may remember me getting the New Zealand police
to drop into a member who was failing to post onwards. Amazing how long a reach we have !!

There will be more deletions to follow, but the exercise is so extensive it's going to take some time.

It was a bit of fun even if NoRMa never made it home, crossed the Atlantic twice, and the no go attitude of the US and Canadian postal authorities, but fell foul of crossing the Tyne. If that makes anyone feel guilty, tough, don't offer to send her back. :D

Ahh,

Bufferstop,

It seems I can't find where I can delete the original multi tour thread, or sticky this warning.
I can't tidy up dead things if I can't delete complete threads.

Eventually found where !! So long since I did this sort of thing.

Galgorm Hall is always open to wagons on tour even if it is in a state of rebuild. Count me in. :D

This is building up quite quickly. I did think about re-using the EWS open,
but what the hell, I shall paint up an unpainted wagon to celebrate our
re-birth of '00' tours.

I am back in the 00 fold and slowly building up my buildings for my current trackmat on floor temporary set up but would like to offer my railway as a destination if that would be alright.

I have no idea what this is, but I'm game. I havn't really got a layout as yet, but its getting close, so by the time it's my turn, the pics will hide any bits not finished. :D

Well what can I say ? Pleased that we have enough scallywags to take

decided on. At least I have one in stock.

It is quite simple...

A wagon is posted to the first member on the list who takes some pictures of it on his/her layout, posts them on the thread then forwards the wagon onto the next member on the list.

The first couple of tours with a van called NoRMan went all over the world to scores of members:

I think this is the first tour from 2007

Hey dad-1, here is a new task for you, make the wagon "Flat pack", so we can disassemble and get it in "Letter post" rather than "Parcel" and save a few pennies. :lol: (5mm for Letter might be a push, but 25mm for Large letter sounds doable!)
